The lady that we are buying milk from gave me the contact info for a small dairy near me (which is where she bought her cow). I called to see if they had any weaned heifers or older cows that they are wanting to get rid of. It turns out that their daughter raised a cow for FFA and is ready to sell it. She was part of the commercial herd but was more of a "pet" than any of the others. She is a registered jersey with a complete medical history. She calved about 3 months ago. Here's the catch - she's 10. They haven't bred her back because they were thinking they were going to sell her and wanted to see what the situation was going to be prior to AI'ing her. They are willing to AI her before selling at no addt'l cost. The want $300 for her. Two concerns come to mind: 1) Her age and the fact that she is not currently bred. 2) The fact that she has only been milked by machine. What do you all think about this one? I am going to see her tomorrow.
